“I thus drew steadily nearer to that truth, by whose partial discovery I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck: that man is not truly one, but truly two.”
Stevenson’s classic warning of the dangers of science, overreaching and succumbing to temptation epitomises the Gothicism of the its era, with a healthy dollop of sensationalism thrown in for good measure. The tale of Henry Jekyll, the esteemed physician who delves too deep into his own nature, the book tells of how such actions resulted in the discovery of the terrible Mr. Hyde, a twisted and deformed study in amorality. As the bodies stack up, Jekyll’s legal friend Mr. Utterson tries desperately to discover the truth before further calamities strike London. Teeming with memorable characters, shocking developments and thought-provoking dilemmas, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is as relevant today as ever.
Following Strange Case’s inclusion upon the new GCSE specification for English Literature (first assessments in 2017), CBy Publishing hereby publishes the full, unabridged 1886 text, complete with Charles Raymond Macauley’s illustrations to the 1904 edition, annotation-friendly margins and a plethora of background material to aid student analysis.
